    Hi Jim,

    Glad you got there in the end

    While it is a lovely place well captured, can I be a killjoy and say I think it isn't vertical?
    I'm not just going by the tree trunk, which might well be leaning for all I know, but an object (e.g. a bloom) and its reflection (in the lake) should be vertically aligned (and they aren't) - just one of those things I am overly sensitive to. It needs a bit of clockwise rotation.

    Another (potentially less accurate) guide is the circular water lily leaves, if absolutely flat on the surface, should, when viewed at an angle like this, have their longest dimension (of the ellipse) horizontal.

    Looking again, I wonder if I still haven't rotated this quite enough

    Cheers,

    Very possibly Dave. I've never looked at it in such detail. I tend to take my shots a bit squint - I've a huge Scots nose.

    Putting aside Dave's cc the photo itself is really very attractive - that's a very vibrant rhodo. I'll remember that cc when I come to take a similar photo-interesting observation,I went back to the photo to look at what Dave was drawing attention to.

    Hi Jim,

    I am glad you got it posted. It took me a long while to be able to post anything on any site with a degree of certainty. I now post my images on smugmug.com and link to forums from there.

    I do like your image but I have a suggestion... Perhaps a closer crop on the left might benefit the composition. A little past the last Rhododendron leaves at the waters edge and before the ferns. This would eliminate a lot of unnecessary greenery and would also crop out the large leaved plants in the lower left which distract my eye from the beautiful blooms.

    Rpcrowe -thanks for your suggestions. I did in fact shoot several shots, some of which were much closer cropped. Somehow they seemed to looked a bit cramped in the frame. By the way I started taking photos way back in the old "dark room" in the bathroom days too. After a thirty year break I'm trying to get back inte it.
